With upcoming food shortages a certainty, forward-thinking chefs, environmentalists and food scientists are turning toward an unexpected (and, for many, unsettling) source of protein: insects. Over a period of three years, Danish filmmaker Andreas Johnsen follows food adventurers from the Nordic Food Lab as they travel the world to learn from the two billion people who already eat insects. Tasting with communities in Europe, Australia, Mexico, Kenya and Japan, they encounter everything from revered termite queens and desert-delicacy honey ants to venomous giant hornets and long-horned grasshoppers. Part travelogue, part nature documentary, part food-porn and part political treatise, Bugs artfully provides a perfect entry point to insect cuisine. Writer/Director: Andreas Johnsen.
